$8 billion more revenue per year over the last 10 years....  
According to the data provided by the Delta Stewardship Council, from 2000 to 2009 for the decated total, water exports from the Delta increased to 54 million acre feet compared to the previous decade where the exports were 47 million acre feet.

In other words, during a "drought" time period, exports were increased.  During a time when the fish populations of the Delta were greatly declining, the exports were increased.

During a time when invasive aquatic species has been taking over the shallow areas of the Delta, severely hampering navigation in some areas, and reducing natural aquatic habitat areas for native fish, the exports were increased.

What is the market value of the extra 7 million acre feet to the water exporters?  At least $8 billion per year!

What is the market value to the water exporters of counting the Yolo Bypass flows as if the water actually flows past Sacramento I Street bridge gage or past Freeport?  $1.4 Billion per year!  (see video re Yolo Bypass)
